ANDAZ WALL STREET ANNOUNCES MARTIN NEHRING AS
NEW FOOD & BEVERAGE MANAGER

NEW YORK (November 10, 2015) – Andaz Wall Street, located in the heart of the Financial District, is pleased to welcome Martin Nehring as the new Food & Beverage Manager. Bringing almost a decade of diverse restaurant and hospitality experience, Nehring has spent most of his career working with Hyatt Hotels Corporation. Most recently, he served as the Banquet Manager at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara where he oversaw a staff of 75 and was responsible for 66,000 square feet of meeting space, including a flexible ballroom in the Santa Clara Convention Center. During his time at the property, Nehring helped with creative ways to achieve results and maintain department engagement, improved the success of meetings and events held at the property and achieved Department of the Quarter status.

“I have a passion for all things food, wine and cocktails and I’m proud to be part of the fantastic team at Andaz Wall Street,” said Nehring. “The property has an excellent seasonal restaurant with a focus on locally sourced ingredients, an innovative cocktail menu and excellent banquet facilities. I look forward to implementing my creativity, expertise and results-driven mentality to further elevate the F&B program.”

Nehring’s interest in the food and hospitality industry can be traced to his California roots, during his first hospitality job as Restaurant and Inn Supervisor at The Davenport Roadhouse Restaurant & Inn, which he started during his Senior Year at University of California, Santa Cruz. After his experience at The Davenport Roadhouse, Nehring first joined the Hyatt team as the Assistant Manager of Hyatt Santa Barbara’s Bistro 1111, where he drew from his prior experiences to collaborate with the Executive Chef in implementing an amenity program featuring locally sourced food and beverage. He also spearheaded the Bistro 1111 wine program and implemented a new Lounge menu while increasing restaurant and IRD revenue. Nehring later transferred to Hyatt Regency Santa Clara as the Beverage Manager overseeing Evolution Bar. Here he led the creation of an original Evolution Lobby bar menu dedicated to locally sourced beverages, and expanded the wine, craft beer and artisanal cocktail programs. In his new role at Andaz Wall Street, Nehring assists Executive Chef Chris Cummer with culinary operations at the hotel including the hotel’s seasonally inspired restaurant Dina Rata, in-room dining, and seasonal courtyard Beer Garden.

“Andaz Wall Street holds a strong commitment to excellence and quality,” says General Manager Rusty Middleton. “With his expertise and unique background in creating smart and on-trend food and beverage experiences for guests, Martin makes a seamless fit for our global yet local perspective at Andaz Wall Street.”
